The Desert Vista Campus of PCC and the Alpha Beta Chi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society are co-hosting monthly Market on the Move events at the DV Campus this fall. Market on the Move is one of the 3000 Club's projects (more details below). I am working with them to help coordinate volunteers for each of the upcoming events.
Every year, The 3000 Club members, supporters and volunteers help to:
• Rescue about 30 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables.
• Distribute over $45,000,000 worth of produce.
• Provide over 23 million meals.
• Help more than 460,000 families in need.
• Distribute fresh produce to more than 300 food banks and agencies across Arizona and throughout the United States.
Here are the Desert Vista Campus event details:

Volunteer Job Description:
We all work together throughout the event with any tasks that need to be done. =)
Before Event: Set-up tables & produce
During event: Directing traffic through the parking lot, picking up stray veggies that slipped onto the ground, replenishing tables with produce when they run out, and helping some customers carry their produce to their vehicles.
After the event: Clean tables, carry them inside and put them away, put away the chairs & signs, break down the shade ramadas, clean the area and throw away all the trash, etc.
We would like to invite volunteers from the Midvale Park Association to join us again at these events. Please let me know if any of you are interested, and if so, which dates and shifts each person would like to sign up for.
I look forward to hearing from you and appreciate your time and consideration!
